Twisted landscapes, ominously swirling skies, creatures plucked from myth and nightmare. And women—passionate, strong, rendered with extraordinary anatomical detail, who captivate with their beauty and fierceness. Born of the heated imaginations of husband-and-wife artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, the Fantasy Calendar for 2009 features thirteen all-new paintings that plunge the viewer into a world that is dark, dynamic, and mysterious, ruled by magic and roamed by fearsome beasts. A priestess sleeps among the tangled roots of a tree, oblivious to the menacing robot looming over her. Two sensuous maidens lull a colorful dragon into submission. A woman battles to stay astride her powerful white steed, her eyes steely and intense. Weaving the dramatic images together is "The Stones of Thay'mir," an original story by C.J. Henderson.

WORLDS OF ENCHANTMENT
Dragons rise from subterranean depths. Mists swirl over the land. Forces clash. Fates are settled—with grimacing finality—at swordpoint. Sprung from the imagination, yet rendered with anatomical clarity and a masterful detail, here is a dramatic place of nightmare and beauty created through the soaring vision of husband-and-wife fantasy artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. A beguiling philosopher-witch breaks free from her icy prison. A goddess and a serpent tangle under the water. A fire-breathing beast emerges from the abyss. A sensuous mermaid rests in a serene cove. Talons curl, tendons flex, and out of the eye, a gleam of shuddering intensity. Thirteen all-new paintings herald the year. Weaving the images together is the engrossing original story "The Games of Nod," by C.J Henderson
